Kolkata: Times right after the Trinamool Congress took an oblique jibe at the BJP ahead of polls and claimed that will not permit West Bengal to turn out to be Gujarat by the ‘outsiders’, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday reminded men and women about the mantra of ‘unity in diversity’ and how Rabindranath Tagore was connected with Gujarat.
Addressing the centenary celebrations of Visva-Bharati University in Santiniketan by way of a video convention, Modi, reported, “Whenever I communicate about Rabindranath Tagore, I are not able to not quit myself from sharing once more about his Gujarat link. Very last time also I mentioned it when I visited Visva Bharati. Currently, as soon as all over again, I would like to remind all of us about Gurudev (Rabindranath Tagore) and Gujarat’s ‘aatmeeyata’ (affinity). We should recall this once more and once again for the reason that it teaches about ‘Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat’”.
“It exhibits that irrespective of various languages, dialect, foods and clothes, our country is so effectively related. It demonstrates that even with our various cultures, we are united with each other. It teaches us brotherhood,” he included.
“Gurudev’s elder brother Satyendranath Tagore was posted in Ahmedabad as an Indian Civil Assistance (ICS) officer. Then, Rabindranath Tagore made use of to take a look at Gujarat frequently and he expended a extended time in Gujarat. Throughout his keep, he wrote two popular Bangla poems, together with ‘Bandi O Amar’ and ‘Nelav Rajni Dekho’. He also wrote a part of his popular participate in ‘Kshudista Pashan’ in Gujarat,” he claimed.
The Primary Minister claimed, “Not only this, ‘a daughter of Gujarat’, also grew to become the daughter-in-legislation in Tagore’s spouse and children.”
Modi reported an facet of Satyendranath Tagore’s wife Jnanadanandini Devi also connects Gujarat with Bangal and the women progress division really should do a small bit of study on it. “When Jnanadanandini Devi ji was in Gujarat, she noticed that nearby women retained their ‘pallu’ (embellished finish of a saree) on their right shoulder as a end result of which it was complicated to operate comfortably. It is believed that it was on Jnanadanandini Devi’s assistance that local ladies in Gujarat began resting their ‘pallu’ on their still left shoulder so that their correct hand remained absolutely free. I consider the Women Development section should do some exploration on it.”
It is only by means of brotherhood and residing with each other like a loved ones, the PM reported, that the country can just take Tagore’s eyesight even more. “Our region is spreading the information emanating from Visva Bharati to the complete world. Currently, we all will have to don’t forget the conditions which led to the establishment of this university. It was not just for the reason that of the British rule but in the background, it was our wealthy thoughts and record of hundreds of years of motion. It was Gurudev’s Visva-Bharati which gave us a solid impression of Indian nationalist sentiment through the flexibility struggle. He desired that the complete humanity should really be benefited from spiritual awakening and ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ (self maintain India) vision is also a derivative of this eyesight,” he explained.
“The Visva-Bharati university is the embodiment of philosophy, eyesight and really hard work of Gurudev. This institute is a supply of frequent power to our nation,” the PM claimed.
In 1878, Rabindranath Tagore visited Ahmedabad when he was 17-a long time previous. All through those times, his elder brother Satyendranath Tagore was the commissioner and to start with ICS officer in Ahmedabad.
All through those times, he stayed at ‘Motisahi Mahal’ which was built by Shahjahan in 1622. Presently the making is recognised as Sardar Patel Smarak Bhavan, situated at Shahibaug.
Trinamool Congress was speedy to reply to PM Modi’s speech and claimed that there was some factual mistake in it.
Later on, TMC MLA, Bratya Basu reported in a press convention, “Why does the Primary Minister of India constantly have to have to remind individuals about Bengal and its Gujarat connection and that also in a centenary party of a College? We believe that his speech was cleverly drafted on political strains and we condemned it.”
